Two Quick questions
I bought a filter today locally, Fram CH6015, and it was $8 + tax
What filters do you use that are reasonable and whats your thoughts on just using these china filters just to have one?
Normal, i would never consider using cheap filters (like in cars), but I am curious if on ATV's its "OK" due to much more simplicity of engines.
Heck, my old TRX200SX did not even have an oil filter just the in engine screen, is buying a "premium brand name" filter worth it?
Example: 12 filters for $16
Supposed (air quotes on that) to filter to 10 microns.
Do TRX300FW ATV's burn oil or have a leaking issue?
I changed my filter/oil today, Full synthetic 10w-40 for first time in 4 years (long time, but moderately low use, + i use full synth) and noticed I has some oil on the bottom of the engine on the back side. I checked the oil level before changing it, and i was at the bottom of the stick.
Do you think its a leak, and if so, any common places they leak from?
In all honesty, I believe she still has the OEM gaskets, IDK if they disintegrate over time naturally, maybe its leaking through there?
The only other thing i could think of is that the full synthetic is to "thin" for the engine gaskets/drain bolt and its leaking extremely slowly.
Thanks as always!
